In my role as Pro Vice-Chancellor (Health and Life Sciences), I’ve been paying very close attention to the University’s research response to COVID-19.
To say I’ve been inspired by what I’ve seen in recent weeks would be an understatement. From collaborating on one of only four global candidate vaccine trials, to research aimed at supporting the most vulnerable during social distancing – the scale, speed and scope of our coronavirus-related research activity has been nothing short of incredible.
I wanted to find a way of shining a light on some of this fantastic work. That’s why we’ve launched ‘The Digital Fireside Talks’ – a new series of short video conversations where, over the next few weeks, I’ll be speaking to some of our research leaders about their response to COVID-19.
I hope you find the conversations both insightful and thought provoking.
